San Diego County is right next to Mexico and because of its scenic views and beautiful nature trails; it is a hotbed for pricey real estate. The San Diego metropolitan area seems to not only have survived the real estate downfall of last year but seems to have thrived in it. Reports indicate a rise if anything in home prices and sales in the San Diego area. Lending standards are getting lower as are mortgage rates so you can expect sales to rise further more as this year treads on. Home prices seem steady according to some market speculation which is why buyers are more secure now in selling their homes which they were previously apprehensive about.
There are many fine homes for sale in the area in the form of small houses, large estates, modern condos, Spanish Villas and even Victorian homes. Choosing where to purchase real estate is the trick as you need to consider personal preferences (such as wanting to be near the ocean) and balance it against the needs of the family.
If you are looking for a luxury home in San Diego then La Jolla is among the most highly sought after and expensive place to live. It has exquisite beauty characterized by the beaches and hills and cliff drops. Real Estate here is about twice the price of Carlsbad or regular ocean view homes but it is worth it because here you get a lot of entertainment avenues and good school districts.
Homes can be bought or rented and condos are particularly popular if you are looking for a cheaper alternative. It is up to you to choose from stylish, modern condos, to exquisite villas, as well as custom estates with designs from the 1930s and 1960s. Out of all the neighborhoods to be found in the area, La Jolla Farms is among the best from every angle. It is atop the crest of the cliffs and there are large lots as well as expansive estates perfect for the lonely rich man or the family man. The view of the sunset and the ocean is divine and the houses are large. They average about $3.5 million apiece and this area boasts of the most expensive or second most expensive real estate in the entire area.
La Jolla CA is spread out over some 200 acres and the farmland is truly beautiful. There is a State park and a golf course nearby as well which further escalates the prices of real estate. Second in number and slightly more affordable is the area known as Country Club. It is as the name suggests a land of parks and golf courses with lots of shopping centers and various fun activities. Classic home styles are more predominantly found here and there is little modern architecture or creativity. But the ocean views you find here are to die for and the prices of houses go up whenever there is a considerable property near the ocean.
If you are crazy about the beach or water or have younger children then the La Jolla Shores is perfect for that demographic. The home style that you will find most here is seaside cottage or custom villa and they are a joy to look at. There is an endless array of activity for you and the kids to engage yourselves in like swimming, scuba diving, cliff jumping, beach sports, surfing and picnicking. There is also a business district here where you can dine well and get any number of different kinds of professional services.
The Beach- Barber Tract is a slightly less pricey alternative and it is a charming little area with a small town feel to it. There are lots of different home styles at work here and they don’t follow any decipherable pattern. There are lots of surfing activities here and beach sports also. Ocean front properties are for around $3 million while ones with a lesser view go for $1 million as well. Condos with one bedroom are better for couples or single people as they are much cheaper and are only a few miles from the beach itself.
In areas such as Beach-Barber Tract you can land a house in a reasonable location with a good enough view for about $1 million but certain estates with ocean views even go for as high as $20 million. Condos however can be secured near the beach for $500k and even less depending on the proximity to the freeway and the beach.
The younger demographic prefers the condos and small townhouses even though they often cost a fortune if they are in the more prestigious neighborhoods. La Jolla Farms and Bird Rock are more modest in their prices although they are now loaded with new construction and general overcrowding. The $2 million price range can also be found in La Jolla Shores Heights which boasts of some great ocean front properties.
